Health Education

Our goal in Health Education is to provide Binghamton University students with the tools and information you need to maintain your good health.

We accomplish this by:

  • Facilitating workshops on a wide range of health topics to audiences on and off campus, or we can offer resources and materials for student leaders or RAs planning their own workshops
  • Providing individual counseling (and referrals if needed) to students who have concerns about sexual health, alcohol and other drug use, sexually transmitted infections, relationship issues, nutrition, fitness, stress management, HIV/AIDS and more
  • Offering a unique, four-credit peer education internship program (REACH or Real Education About College Health) that brings wellness messages out to students across campus
  • Collaborating on various health awareness events and campaigns such as the importance of getting a flu shot, the need to keep your tech devices germ-free, safer sex, World AIDS Day, the Clothesline Project and more
  • Maintaining a listing of health information links and a health promotion library for student use

Services Open to All Students

Health Education services are available to all registered students free of charge — the mandatory student health fee you pay as part of your tuition covers the cost for Health Education programming.

Staff

You can feel comfortable speaking with our staff. They’re friendly and competent, and will keep your discussion confidential.

Our staff includes:

  • Bridget McCane-Saunders, Associate Director for Health Education
  • Judy Rose, Support Staff 
  • Graduate Assistants: Brian Kirschler and Molly Babcock
  • Dozens of enthusiastic student educators in our REACH internship program

Hours

Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Location

The Health Education Office has moved from its temporary location, Fine Arts 187G, to the newly renovated space in Decker Student Health Services. The entrance to the new office is the outside staircase to the far right of the Decker Student Health Services building. Students with disabilities can access our office by going through the main entrance and speaking to someone at the front desk.
